Why did I decide to become a coach to leaders and teams? I get that question from time to time – usually at networking and social events.

The answer is both selfish and altruistic.

I wanted to have a bigger impact.

I don’t think I am alone in having that desire.

In my corporate career and before I started my consulting business, I was able to have an impact and find many wins. But this was often despite environments that didn’t expect a lot from the rest of the organization.

Often, I was the one pushing for improvements and opportunities.

These organizations I worked for achieved a great deal of success (and I am very proud to have been one of the contributors to that success), but I think they only scratched the surface of what was possible.

I didn’t want to be in environments where I could live up to some of my potential. I wanted to challenge myself to live to my full potential.

It was because of these experiences that I realized the outsized impact that leadership can have. I realized that leadership is either contributing to the conditions for success or diminishing them.

In business terms: Money can fall off the table for no darn good reason. And THE BIGGEST reason is leadership.

And that’s why I love working with leaders and teams. I want them to push themselves and find their potential. I want them to find out what they are capable of as individuals and as teams. I want leadership teams to create the conditions for success for others and multiply their impact.

Creating the conditions for success is good for people and it’s good for business. And it’s why I have been able to turn a passion into a business. Better leaders. Better teams. Better business.

Leadership is a privilege. Leaders get to expand opportunities for self-expression, fulfillment, and success. It’s why I use the phrase leading prosperity.

As a leader you have a unique opportunity to have a big impact on both people and profits. And it starts with being the best leader and team you can be.
